Lampada T.: lampada da tavolo,, Italian for table lamp. Stilplast glues it on many lamps. It is not the name of this lamp.
The design of this 1990s Lampada T. table lamp is based, to say the least, on the design of the Miss Sissi table lamp designed by Philippe Starck (born in 1949) in 1990 and in production by FLOS since 1991. This one is also from the early nineties, to see on the label without the, since 1993, mandatory CE logo.
Veneta Lumi produced another, similar table lamp named Lulù, as you can see below. The only difference with this lamp is that it has the switch on the cord and is not built-in the base, as you can see below. The Lulù table lamp can be found over here.
